Jennifer Samet interviews painter Matt Phillips about his work and process.

Phillips remarks: "I'm interested in working with these things that are dumb fundamental components of visual language – the square, the triangle, the octagon, the stuff that is in everyone's kitchen sink, the stuff that everyone knows. If you work with simple components, and they all work together to transcend their parts— that's the magic of painting."
